Plastic Surgeon Specialist
At the Clinic for Plastic Surgery located in Malaga and Benalmadena, Dr. Ruiz Ruiz specializes in plastic and cosmetic surgery of the face.
Dr. Maribel Ruiz, a specialist in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, conducts the procedure under sedation and local anesthesia. This treatment rejuvenates the appearance of a tired face, providing a more youthful and refreshed look.
The procedure typically lasts between 1 and 2 hours and can be combined with other surgical procedures such as facelifts.
The eyelid surgery begins with delicate incisions following the natural lines of the patient’s eyelids to remove the appropriate excess of fat, skin, and sagging muscle. Subsequently, the incisions are closed with very small sutures (stitches). Following surgery, the patient is administered ophthalmic cream and dressings with saline solution.
Scars from Blepahroplasty are very discreet as they are placed in locations that are not visible.
In the case of lower eyelid Blepharoplasty, the incision is made on the inner part of the eyelid, making the scar completely invisible.
For upper Blepharoplasty, the incision is made in the natural crease of the eyelid. This means that when the eyes are open, the scars are not visible at all, and they are only noticeable during the brief interval when the eye is closed. However, even then, Dr. Maribel Ruiz is skilled at making minimal incisions with sutures so delicate that the result renders the scar virtually unnoticeable.
If the patient wishes, Blepharoplasty can be performed on all four eyelids simultaneously, as it is common for the issue to affect both the upper and lower eyelids. There are instances where addressing the concern in either the upper or lower eyelids alone is sufficient.
In the case of upper Blepharoplasty, Dr. Maribel Ruiz will make an incision along the eyelid crease, removing excess skin and suturing the resulting ends together. For lower Blepharoplasty, she will make an incision beneath the eyelashes, nearly along the same line, or within the eyelid, removing excess muscle, fat, and skin.
The postoperative period is straightforward since the procedure is performed under sedation or local anesthesia. Patients typically go home after the intervention, and in most cases, they can resume their normal activities within a few days.
Dr. Maribel Ruiz recommends the use of a cold compress mask, which can be purchased at any pharmacy, for two or three days while at home. This helps reduce swelling and redness. She may also suggest the use of a cream or ointment to keep the skin hydrated and minimize the risk of infection. Swelling and bruising will gradually subside within a few days.
It’s important to follow Dr. Maribel Ruiz Ruiz’s postoperative instructions and avoid activities that require physical exertion and any activities that could increase pressure on the operated area during the recovery period.
Recovery from Blepharoplasty is typically quick and without complications, though individual experiences may vary, and the recovery time can differ from person to person.
